Fastnet Race photography at the Fastnet Rock July 23-27 (Fastnet Race start is July 22 in Cowes)

On July 23 we will join a 50 foot sailing boat in Baltimore Ireland and station ourselves by the Fastnet Rock to photograph the boats rounding. Limited to just 4 places the boat will be our home and shooting platform for the duration. Depending on weather we will go to an anchorage or small harbour in the hours of darkness, but the idea is to spend as much time at the Rock as possible. The boat will have a professional skipper in charge.

Orcas & Humpbacks from Tromso, Norway. October 21-28

On this trip we explore the fjords close to Tromso photographing the whales each day and anchor in evening in remote coves away from all light pollution and hopefully see the northern lights. Last year at times we had more than 20 whales around us, both Orcas and Humpbacks as they follow the herring into the fjords. This is an incredible experience.
